     This is a complete commericial quality toolbar control for use with VB6 (VB5 users will need to create replacements for Replace and Split functions). It is completly owner drawn, and has no requirements on Common Controls, IE or whatever. As much as possible, API is used to greatly enhance and optimise the control. Buttons can be standard buttons, seperators or placeholders. Each button can have hover and down pictures, as well as alignable caption text. Virtually everything can be customised, include the colors of the toolbar itself. It also has several other code which would be of use for applications, such as file and colour common dialogs via the API, complete API driven graphics routines, and an extended graphics manipulation class. Includes complete documentation in the form of a CHM file, code is commented where appropriate as well. Note: This is advanced code and not really of much use for beginners, although it does include lots of common routines which you could use in your projects, as well as several standard modules. Vist the Cyotek website at for more ActiveX controls.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
